Arthur works on a community garden to fill the void, & sits in the shed there, to find solace, as an escape, listening to the cricket on Test Match special.


The test match

Sometimes I know there's no use saying
there is no use in hanging round
sometimes, it's no good I am saying
sometimes the whole thing gets me down

Life can feel so rough
when you think you've had enough
cracking walls, unsightly bumps
this is no playground, it's a dump

Outside, unclear, my head is raging
them pills had no effect at all
I'm looking out the window saying
it's time to turn & face the wall

I can sit all day, hoping the world will go away
but my shed is here to stay
making everything OK

It must be time to give up playing
I come & go, nothing here, then go away

It's my shed I spend my days in
no one to order me around
it's up to me, so I am staying
I'm cut adrift from those around

I sit here all day, hoping rain won't stop play
in my shed all is OK, tomorrow's just another day

What can keep me near to the things I hold dear
I'm going to make it very clear
it'll be time to disappear.
